Description
The small white child in this picture book feels alien when his family returns to America. He can't wait to go back to the warm African village where he ran free with his friends under a wide sky. . . . The joyful text and Cooper's boldly drawn, glowing of washed pictures evoke the intensely physical experience of the small child, his delight in the place and culture, what it feels like to belong there.--Booklist, starred review.
